All-out nuclear war… What would you do? Where would you go? Would you and your family survive? Two hundred and sixty-four survivors answer those questions in this novel of courage and struggle. Saved by a man of vision, they were selected to live and carry on through the toughest ordeal mankind had ever faced. Volume one of three, this book is the beginning of their journey as they travel from near and far to reach a safe haven. This is a tale of a small remnant of humanity learning to survive and cope in a world forever changed. It’s the story of Will Hargraves, a billionaire defense contractor, and Mark Teller, his protégé. Along with Will’s daughter Chris, and many others, they find shelter from the apocalypse only to have it snatched from them as creatures of the dark invade their sanctuary.

About Carol A Bird

This is Carol's first novel, hopefully the first of many! Carol has had a life-long interest in all things relating to survival. Even as a child in San Diego, she carried around a small canvas bag with a bottle of water and a piece of fruit, a pocketknife, a flashlight and a deck of cards. Later she enjoyed backpacking, where she could carry around a lot more stuff and even got to stay out overnight! More recently she enjoys being a "survivalist" and pondering what life would be like in a post-apocalyptic world. Joining the Army at the age of eighteen, she was the first woman to attend the U.S. Army Chemical School, and was trained in CBR, or Chemical, Biological and Radiological laboratory techniques. Carol has participated in two 10 day backpacking/survival trips and is a certified scuba diver. She has a private pilot's license and has completed a few 50k races, several marathons and many, many races at shorter distances. She graduated from California State University Northridge with a Bachelor of Science in Biology/biotechnology and has worked as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist for most of her adult life. Carol has three daughters and a son, and lives in Colorado Springs with one of her daughters, a granddaughter and her newly adopted grandson.
